Spelt Hot Cross Buns

Here’s my healthier version of the traditional Hot Cross Bun using spelt flour instead of plain or wholemeal flour. The texture is somewhat different but that’s to be expected since I’m not using the typical ingredients that make a hot cross bun light and fluffy, but I like denser breads and cakes anyway so I’m absolutely thrilled with the results!

You probably all know by now that I’m a massive fan of overnight oats (also known as Bircher Muesli) because of how convenient and easy it is to make. Also because it tastes amazing…if you use the right flavour combination!

Making homemade granola is easier than you think. The best thing about making your own granola is that you can customise it to your personal taste. If you like it sweet, add more sweetener. If you don’t like raisins, leave them out! The second best thing is that you can avoid all those added calories, processed sugars and other unnecessary ingredients! It’s a nice feeling knowing exactly what’s going into your body and that it’s actually doing you some good!

Here’s a healthy, creamy and rich cheesecake recipe without using any cheese, dairy products, animal products, gluten or refined sugars! It’s full of healthy fats and goodness. Please don’t let the word ‘fat’ put you off. We all need fat in our diet. It has a crucial role in structural and metabolic functions and more and more research is showing how wrong we’ve been about fat in the past and how avoiding it is causing health problems and making us gain weight!

Guacamole goes with everything: salads, vegetables, meat, in sandwiches…I make so many different variations all the time depending on what ingredients I have, but mostly how lazy I’m feeling! Usually, I’ll scoop a ripe avocado onto a plate, mash it with a fork, add lots of fresh lemon juice and a sprinkle of pepper and call it ‘Guacamole’. It tastes so good and fresh simply like that, but if you’re having Mexican food (say Fajitas!) then you have to do it properly.
